    It's good to know we finally got an adaption (reboot?) of a well known thing that didn't suck. Also, glad to know it hasn't been underperforming like pretty much every other movie this year. I wonder if Mike from Stranger Things will ever be on anything that isn't some variation on The Goonies.

    FRIEND REQUEST? Hadn't heard of that one yet . . . lemme guess, another attempt to make an aspect of social media into an hour-and-a-half story like THE EMOJI MOVIE?

    They were beaten to the punch by Unfriended three years ago.

    September continues strong with Kingsman 2 leading the pack, It still clinging on to 2nd, and the Lego Ninjago movie rounding out the 3rd, though with the lowest U.S. opening so far -- only a 3rd of what The Lego Movie opened with.

    Meanwhile, Friend Request bombed at 7th place. A killer clown really is more interesting than killer social media.

    I think all killer things are more interesting than killer social media. Even a killer butter stick.

    A killer butter stick? Sounds like a new idea for a novel that Stephen King would come up with. :D

    Well, still better than a sentient truck with The Green Goblin's face.

    Oh, come on guys, don't start giving lamestream Hollywood any dumb ideas. . . .

    Eh, there are so many Stephen King stories, these movies are probably already in the works.

    Looks like Tom Cruise vehicle American Made is sandwiched between It and Kingsman 2, all of which made a little over $17 million. But then there's the Flatliners remake/sequel starring Kiefer Sutherland, which flatlined at 5th place. The original from 1990 was a hit at the time, but it was apparently quickly forgotten about. Heck, even I've never heard of it until now.

    Next week comes Blade Runner 2049 and My Little Pony: The Movie, the latter of which I'm hoping is a decent success and not a spectacular Jem and the Holograms level of failure. The former at least isn't utterly betraying the source material and seems to have a decent amount of love put into it.

    Why an MLP movie?

    Maybe because the writers and producers wanted to do something bigger and bolder by making a theatrical movie? I don't see anything wrong with that.

    Wasn't there already a TT movie in the works?

    But why Teen Titans Go? I think Steven Universe or Adventure Time (even though I don't watch AT that much) should get a movie instead.

    It doesn't necessarily have to be either/or, I think SU would make a great movie, only problem is the show's so arc heavy, it might not get a massive audience. If they had a movie, it would either have to be after the show is already over and the story lines are resolved, or it would be in the middle of the show and ignore the story arcs altogether.

    I think so. Maybe they'll come out close together kind of like how Lego Batman came out the same year as Batman v. Superman, sort of helping to promote each other.

    I think AT was/is getting a movie. Haven't heard anything on that last time it was announced.

    I heard the movie got canceled.
